Galway city is a vibrant place, said to be Ireland's city of culture, it has many lovely restaurants providing both locally sourced produce and also ethnic foods and of course many pubs with traditional music.
There is a festival in Galway most of the year! Easter has the food festival which is very popular, Cuirt the literary festival follows on and then into the summer for the Galway Arts festival and the famous Galway races, Through the year there is always a great buzz in the city and to be part of it you only have to stroll through town, watch the buskers and street performers and have a drink sitting outside one of the many pubs and do a spot of people watching!
While here it is a great opportunity to visit Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher in county Clare and the Arran islands, all can be done as day trips from the city with one of the coach tour (email hidden) is possible to hire bicycles to explore the city.

Perfect accommodation for a trip to Galway! I can not say enough nice things about Sarah's place. It is absolutely ideal in everyway possible. The place is stunning and makes you feel completely at home. Both rooms were amazing, and we had a private bathroom for our own usage. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! The location is perfect- so close to the city centre (10 mins walking) so close to the sea! Lots of local pubs near by for authentic Irish music. Sarah was a lovely host- she picked my sister and I up from the train station and dropped us off. She was so helpful in suggesting places for us to visit , but also allowed us to have our own space. She provided an amazing breakfast that kept us going for the whole day. If you are traveling by yourself, or with another person I would absolutely recommend Sarah's place. It is a little slice of heaven! I hope to come back soon!
Really nice place, very close to the city center. The house is as beautiful as you can see in the pictures. The room was very quiet and both the room and the (private separated) bathroom were spotless. Plus, the breakfast was gorgeous!
Sarah is a wonderful host. She was very kind to pick my husband and me up at the train station. She gave us a lot of great suggestions about where to go in the city. And we enjoyed talking with her a lot, she has a very interesting conversation.
I highly recommend her and if we go back to Galway, we'd definitely stay with her.
Unsere Tage bei Sarah waren superklasse! Sie ist in Ihrem ausgesprochen liebevoll eingerichtetet Haus wirklich eine perfekte Gastgeberin! Außerdem ist die Lage toll - das Meer und auch die Altstadt von Galway sind nur wenige Gehminuten entfernt! Auf einen Nenner gebracht: Sehr zu empfehlen!!!
Sarah was the sweetest host! The room is so quiet and the bed was quite comfortable. She had great recommendations for day trips and restaurants in town. I loved my time at her adorable home.
Thank you Sarah for a fantastic time in Galway. Perfect host, lovely home, great location within easy walking distance of everything to explore & enjoy.
Could highly recommend Sarah's place to anyone looking to stay in Galway. Hopefully be back there soon!
Wir haben uns ziemlich wohl gefühlt. Sarah hat uns vom Bahnhof abgeholt und uns morgens ein leckeres, kleines Frühstück zubereitet. Sie war sehr hilfsbereit!
Das Haus liegt in einem ruhigen Wohngebiet. Man ist super schnell am Wasser und auch in die Stadt kommt man gut zu Fuß.
Das Zimmer und das Bad waren sauber und ausreichend und so wie wir es uns vorgestellt haben.
